Older tech, bit bulky, but works like a champ.
- Hot burner
- Flame adjustability
- Stability (top heavy)
The Coleman Peak 1 Backpacking Stove — bit bulky, bit heavy compared to most other white gas stoves (i.e., MSR WhisperLite). Totally big and heavy compared to any canister stove or ultra-light alcohol burner.
Does it work? Certainly. I've had mine since 1997. Gets going hot fast and has good flame adjustability. However, you do have to remember to oil the pump gaskets every 6 months or so, or else they'll dry up and then the stove won't pressurize.
Would I buy one again today new? Nope. Would I buy one at a yard sale for $10 or so? Sure. Good backup or additional car camping stove.
